Ak-Sar-Ben's euccees as a pro moter of pageantry was signal from the outset, but it stands out still stronger every year by contrast with similar ventures in other cities. The latest is the announced sus pension of the Priests of Pallas parade In Kansas City, "where for the first time in twenty-six years visitors will be invited to come to the fall festivities with the most glittering attraction left out." Kan sas City people have all sorts of ex cuses to offer for the fall-down of the Priests of Pallas: that the sub stitution of electricity for kerosene torches, and the introduction of modern spectacles, have put the old time parade in the scrap heap. The real fact, however, which Kansas City folks should realize and admit, is that they have not maintained the kind of an organization necessary to command the resourcefulness to utilize and arpiy modern Inventions, and bring their parades up to date. Here in Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben is liv ing and conclusive proof of both these propositions.. Our annual Ak-Sar-Ben parade is not only a thing of beauty and a Joy forever, but It is each year bigger, better and grander than ever. ' Danish-American Patriotism. Danes from sixteen .American states have bought and presented to their native land through its sover eign ruler a beautiful tract con verted into a park outside of Aal borg, Denmark. It is stipulated in the deed as accepted by King Chris tian IX, that on the Fourth of July of each year this pleasure ground shall be especially reserved for the celebration of the American day of independence by Americans who chance to be" (n Denmark." -7" : 7 I This ' is an sunique circumstance. Here i&re natlfe born Danes ' trans planting5 on panmarHVsoll the seed of fundamental ? Americanism , ana Denmark;: encOiiragihg the: act: go we' shall have at least one place in monarchal Europe dedicated to ob servance of the Fourth of 'July while we In this country " are celebrating the day. It exempllles. as ' good Americans, ' as well - as good Danes, those; who in . vast thousapds have come from Denmark to' our shores. As Ambassador Egan says, America owes! them much for "their exam ples of religion without bigotry, of culture without weakness. ... A Democratio Love Feast. Mr. Hearst Is still pouring out manifestations of his undying devo tlon and love for Mr. Bryan. Here are; a few 'gems of democratic har mony from Mr. Hearst's newest sighed dissertatlonn the democratic platform:, ( . The platfrrrn ' is Bryan's, and, is characteristic . combination tofj,kBryan's Ignorance and egotism. The tariff plank reflects Bryan's free trade views, and recalls Bryan's attitude as a congressman. At mat time ne cauea manufacturers . ':robbers.'.'and..the wprk- ingmen "beggars." The plank for presidential primaries Is worse than worthless. Mr. Bryan, like many other delegates, repudiated his In structlons, denied the right of the people through presidential primaries, assumed a superior tight for himself, and not only refused to vote for Champ Clark, but did his worst to defeat ChamP Clark, the choice of the people of his state, and his district. There will be other delegates td other conventions as discreditable as Mr, Bryan with as little morality, and as little sense of decency at Mr., Bryan. The favoring of a Bix-year term for presidents Is contrary to the expressed declaration of the founder, of the demo, cratlo party. It brings Into streng con trast the democratic policies of Jefferson, and the unsound policies of William Jen nings Bryan Bryan Is anl. finsound theorist without definite policy and with out genuine concern for anything but his own advancement, trimming and trading and compromising and evading to make a momentary ' point kt the expense of a permanent policy and a recognised right. The platform concludes with the empty plank and hollow utterance relating to "the rule of the people," which could have emanated only from William Jen nlngs Bryan, and which it would have been an insult to attribute to any other member of the platform committee. No trading, trimming traitor ever evolved a more treasonable plank than the one which concludes the democratio platform. How these democrats do love each other! What Mr. Bryan thinks of Mr. Hearst will be told In a subse quent chapter. Volunteer Harvesters The sentiment attaching to the spectacle of 800 business and pro- fAatinnal ... a "ofiuiiai "n ana pretty young women volunteering to beln harvest grain does not obscure the really serious side of the situation that seerat 10 nave arisen in a western Nebraska county, where the harvest Is great and the reapers few. It Is only one such county In this and jmany other neighboring states, which, undoubtedly, has need of more harvest hands than are avail able; But a condition that calls for 800 men and women to donate one day's work in the grain . ..equiv alent to one person tolling 800 days, simply serves to emphasize the gen eral demand for a larger arrays of sgriculturists in . this country. If we were hot making the grave error of preferring the city too much to the farm." we should not experience such crises,-for the farming -population would be more- nearly equal to the demands. And again, this case, which Is but typical,, discredits any thing that may be said disparagingly of th! opportunity .for 1 .wholesome employment for those whx really want to work." ' "'' GOSSIP IN ARMY CIBCLES Matters of Interest Noted by the Army aid : Navy Register. Money- for Enlisted Men. A very unusual condition exists in the army, the enlisted men having failed to receive their pay for the month of June. Deficiency estimates were sent to con gress and the bill now being considered carries a deficiency appropriation of 11,500,000. Of course, some of this amount was due to the Increase of officers under the act of March 3, 1911, amounting to 230 In number, besides an addition of forty six officers due to the correction of in equalities that have resulted from lineal promotion. About $400,000 was necessary to provide for these additional officers and the balance Is due the enlisted men. All army officers were paid for the month of June, their accounts having been promptly settled on the last day of July. Enough money was on hand to provide for the officers, but the rolls of the enlisted men, which came In several days after the first of July, will have to be carried until the deficiency bill becomes law. The original estimates submitted by the pay department were sufficient to cover the' needs of the army when they were submitted, but the estimates were ordered reduced by the secretary of war and, of course, a deficiency was hound to come unless the army had been reduced in strength. Wireless Telephone Apparatus. The assistant secretary of war recently called the attention of congress to the question of the purchase and development of wireless telephone apparatus. In a let ter to the chalrmaH of the house com mittee on appropriations he says: 'With a VIeV to extending to the next fiscal year the availability of the funds appropriated for the purchase and devel opment of wireless-telephone apparatus in the act making appropriation for the support of the army for the fiscal year ending June 30. 1910, I have the honor to recommend that thsre be Inserted lit the general deficiency bill, when the same shall be considered by your commit tee, the following clause, vis: "The funds appropriated In the act ap proved March 3, 1909, for the purchase and' development" of "wireless telephone apparatus are hereby, made available, for the purpose ' heretofore appropriated, during the fiscal year ending Juris 30, 1913. ' "Experiments in th development .of wireless telephone apparatus are still In progress and it s desired to continue the work during the next, fiscal year. .Such actjon will not require the appropriation of additional money, but will merely ex tend the availability of the balance of the appropriation. The amount unexpended and . available at .this date of the ap propriation above referred to Is $1,369.42." The house committee on appropriations did not see fit to grant this request and It was not Included In the general de ficiency bill. Systems of Shop Management.- Scientific shop ; management in manufacturing ' establishments of the the War department, and the Navy depart ment has received a setback in the re port submitted by the senate committee on education and labor relating to such systems. The committee expresses the tplnlon that the systems contain many excesses which are oppressive to work men and have a tendency to reduce the employe to a mere machine, ' depriving POPULAR ' ELECTI0 An Iowa Idea That Frightens a Bull Mooser. m Chicago News (B. M ): In favoring the election of postmasters by direct vote of their constituencies the Iowa progretslvo followers of Roosevelt in the state convention at Des Molnet sounded a false note. Progress does not He In that direction. The course outlined s calculated ruther to lead to confusion and administrative Irresponsibility. The demand of progressives should be for a short ballot, not for a ttlll longer one. The direct power of the voters over offi cials who determine the policies of gov ernment ought to be increased. The movement to make United States sen ators elective by the people, for example. Should be. carried .to. early success under a constitutional amendment. Direct nom inations of candidates for offices filled by the people at the polls it necessary. Such steps as these are essential to real popu lar rule. But officials with .merely ad ministrative dutlet of a tubordlnate na ture to perform should not be elected. They should be appointed by superior official! responsible to the people for the successful conduct of the affairs of gov ernment. There are now too many elective offi cials in ftates. counties and cities. The plan of the federal government In tni respect Is best.

To the Editor of The Bee: Apparently tht mediums and seers of Omaha are to go through tht same persecution already suffered In Chicago and many other places. Some of this class no doubt art out and out fakes. Nevertheless I maintain that they have as good a right to im pose upon the public as have the count less ministers, doctors, lawyers and busi ness element. Ministers cannot prove their assertions, then why insist upon these mediums do ing what the preachers can't do? Many ministers throughout tho land draw im mense salaries, when they know they aro preaching error and imposing on the pub lic and training the human mind the wrong way. Why don't we persecute them for this and make them pay an im mense license for it? We know that th average lawyer is a privileged thief. Also the business man could not make good If he did not prevaricate. Why. don't we get after tht doctors and make them pay over to the city a big turn for taking advantage Of the-common ignorance? When people get more en lightened they art not going to be Im posed upon by any class. So I say until .that time comet let the mediums have the same privilege as tht others in fleec ing the populace. , The world Is still In its Infancy ot wis dom. These mediums keep ever before us a germ of truth which will in time be taken heed of. No doubt they needed the money and they have as much right hini of his self reliance and, In the long run, reducing government employes to a condition of unresisting vassaUge. It will be recalled that the secretary of war was unqualifiedly In favor of the "Taylor system" of shop mnSPment, although at the time of his approval of the ex Unslon of h system to the various arsenals there was vigorous protest on the part of labor unions. The Watertown arsenal was made the experimental sta tion, and the theories of Mr. Taylor, in sofar as they could be adopted, were put in force. The results .were claimed to justify the further extension of the sys tem to other government establishments. It was claimed that tlW was tin In crease In the efficiency of .manufacture and a material reduction in cost. It was believed theac results were obtained with out endangering the . interests of the working men. The labor , unions have made a vigorous fight against this par ticular system, and one of their strongest arguments Is that the machine shop of the Mldvale Steel company,. In which . Mr. Taylor perfected his system, ,has aoan doned most .of it -as an method of management. unprofitable AhoTvinir Off the Army. The military authorities did very well In declining the offer of Colonel w. . Cody, otherwise known as "Buffalo Bill." to aid army recruiting by adding a .rep resentation of troops to his show. There was probably no occasion to take the proposition more seriously than should attach to an ingenious scheme of an en terprising, thrifty and resourceful show man and an easy way to avoid any dis cussion of the merits of the plan was afforded by the discovery that the use of the army In the manner suggested by Colonel Cody would prove a violation of the law embodied in section 3fi7 of the revised statutes, which prohibits the ac ceptance of voluntary service, such as the Judge advocate general recognized as the effect of the proposal. It might have beert said, aitnougn H would have been going out -of the way to do so. that the War department could not be reasonably' expected to lend us Influence and lts ald. to a circus, - with whatever of casual benefit there might liave been derived from such an. exhibit of the army to the people as a means of convincing them that the military estab lishment is efficient. Perhaps this. I not altogether what Is desired 1" quar ters In view of .the. persistent assertion before congress, in magazine articles. In postprandial speeches and In newspaper interviews (hat our army Is worthless .r, an armv In' nothing- but nams. The people who are prepared to believe In this deterioration of the military body mav not be willing to accept the demon straUon of fitness conveyed by the highly spectacular stunts of the circus ring and, seriously, It Iw a question whether there Is any advantage to be obtained from ex hlbltions of this sort. The real test of the army is when it has something to do, either In a military way or In the work of rescue and protection in time of calamity, of which there have been numerous examples to the lasting credit of the officers and men who participated In the meantime, the army, as the navy, Is apt to be forgotten and neglected to some extent, save for the efforts of those who really have the Interests of the service at heart and are not uulded in their acclaim by selfish considerations, to which they subordinate all else. N OF POSTMASTERS officials the the members of congress and the president and vice president. The president 'names the 'department heads. The latter In turn should be free 'to ap point their subordinates without any re strictions than those imposed by civil service laws. The trouble with the pres ent situation is that postmasters are named in too many Instances directly by the president instead of by the postmaster-general, and In making the ap pointments the president gives weight to political recommendations. A great administrative system like the Postofflce department must have central ized direction. There would be serious loss of efficiency' and impairment of dis cipline If the postmasters owed their ap pointment to their constituencies instead of to' the head 'Of, the department. The postofflce system, to give-thorough sat isfaction, must have unity. A local post master Is far more than the agent of the people of a particular community. He Is a, part of a Rre.at aystem with which he must work In harmony' if he Is to. be rea sonably efficient. Those . wVo urge the election of post masters by the people merely demonstrate their own lack of understanding of the fundamental nature of the problem with which they are dealing., to make It that way at other people have to make money, their way. So let the mediums alone, for they really do less harm than most any ether eltment of society. ; ' A14CE G. MILLIE. Another Free Art for Jerry. SOUTH OMAHA. Aug. 5.-To the Editor of The Bee: In your.

A train of one Pullman and six coaches came rushing into Omaha from the west loaded with. $60,000,000 In gold coin. It was from the San Francisco mint bound for Washington, D. C, and made all the time in travel that It could. The money was piled up on the floors of the cars and the doors and windows and window shades were kept tightly closed. One of the regiment of special guards protecting the train, when asked about the danger ot robbery, said: "Most of the boys would be glad if some one would try to rob the train, for It would relieve their monotony." Ten Years Asro As was anticipated. ( the Savage, police board deposed Captains Dan W. Her and Thomas Hayes to patrolmen, and- elevated to their stations former Captains Henry P.

Kansas City Journal: William Jen nings Bryan, a political crjtic for revenue only, finds much to condemn and little to approve In President Taft's speech of acceptance. The value ot Mr. Bryan's criticism .can be better understood when it Is reflected that he is hired to do the Job. at so much a column, and that no matter what Mr. Taft had said In his speech it would have received the con demnation just the same. When a politi cian of uncompromising partisanfl ip has his partisan zeal whetted by an itching palm he is utterly unfitted for the role of honest critic and his printed opinions are without value.
